"High school sports be it in a small town or urban area, take a front seat to academics. The star of the football team rapes a student and the student is made to be the villain. Tiffani Amber-Thiessen, all grown-up from "Save By the Bell" plays a student trying to elevate her popularity by hanging out with the "cool" crowd only to be an outcast becasue she refused to allow her attacker get away with a crime. Her girlfriends are unsupportive of her because they are too caught up in this "hunk" who is nothing more than a senseless jerk. The principal, a female and mature woman, seems to turn a blind eye to this. She is part of the problem as to why our education system is failing. The lack of academics and student conduct and too much emphasis on the school winning a team doesn't make an upstanding school. She at first isn't willing to take drastic action until a lawyer comes in and lets her know what the law is and says. That is when she starts to panic and gathers her senses. This is a movie not only for the audience to watch, but a tool for educators who think they can sweep up problems like this under the rug."

"This movie really touched me because of it's realness and emotion. I think the actors did well in showing real emotion and trying to convey the message that I think the movie had. What a powerful depiction of peer pressure and abuse."
Fighting For The Truth

"This movie is so gooooodddd! I taped it off the lifetime network one day after seeing it months before. Tiffani plays a great role as a couragious and determined teenager who wants to see the people who hurt her get punished. Not only does she end up going against the whole town but she becomes outcasted and hurt by people she considered to be her friends. Brian Austin Green's character is awesome as far as dealing with peer pressure and in the end just going with what he feels. I cried in this movie and I laughed...it belongs on every girls movie shelf! I gurantee you will enjoy this movie as much as I do now!"
I LOVE THIS MOVIE!

"I have not seen the DVD yet, but I remember when the movie first aired on NBC. I loved it and am sure I will enjoy the DVD as well. The movie was done while Tiffani Amber Thiessen and Brian Austin Green were costars on 90210 and living together in real-life, so the on screen chemistry that they displayed in this movie is both incredible and real. This is a great movie to teach women that they should fight no matter what, I can't wait to get the DVD."
Classic Made for TV Movie

"If you love slightly cheesy Lifetime-style made-for-TV movies, this is a good one to add to your collection! My favorites have former Saved by the Bell or Beverly Hills 90210 cast members, so this one has both. Brian Austin Green was such a geek on 90210 but he really grew into a hottie - if you're a fan of his you'll love this movie! Tiffani Amber Thiessen plays the lead role, looking like the SBtB College Years version of Kelly. This movie isn't Oscar-worthy art, but it's good entertainment. The DVD contains the movie only - no special features. Parents should probably review content advisories before purchasing since the movie is about rape and depicts sexually active high school students and underage drinking. As far as I remember, BAG is shown with no shirt on and TAT is shown in her underwear in some scenes."
